160GB Classics - In Stores?

Has anybody actually seen a 160GB Classic in an Apple Store?

I've been to the 5th Avenue store in NYC every day since the keynote, and nobody seems to know when they'll have the damned things in stock. Tonight, one of the floor reps told me the best way to get the 160 was to order it from the Apple Store online.

Honestly, if nobody in a flagship store knows what's going on with the shipping/stock situation, Apple has a huge problem with its retail operation.

Actually some people in NYC did get there's from an Apple store and it's even available in Bloomington, Minnesota. So it's safe to say that they'll be available in most stores by early this week.

Strange. I've been in both the Soho and the 5th Ave. stores in NYC and been told that they haven't had the 160GBs in stock yet. Either your NYCers are talking about the 80GB, or the floor reps at one or both stores are liars.

You maybe right about the NYC stores but it sure is available in Minnesota, this is the link to the thread on the official Apple forums:

WTF?

The world is a truly screwed up place when something is available for purchase at the Mall of Americas before it can be found on Fifth Avenue in NYC.

They have 'em in stock at the Soho store. Silver and Black, 80 and 160 GB.

My 160GB is syncing right now. Hells, yeah. Only 25,470 songs to go!

Not sure...I didn't want to bother going to the store, figuring they wouldn't have them yet, so I ordered online. I'll have it tomorrow -- can't wait!

How thick is it compared to the old 5.5g 80gig. I've heard people say that the 80gig classic feels a bit slimmer than the 5.5g 30, which is what I have now. Pics would be great.
